Re: restarting a simulation accurately

Using the velocity or binvelocity command you can specify the velocity
file. You can search previous threads on thsi forum for more
information. Also, you can specify where the last simulation started
using the "firsttimestep" parameter. Look in the namd users guide for
more details on this.

Good luck!
